A Night Out

Last night I actually went out! I went to my friends holiday party and had such a great time. Being a Mom that does everything revolving around her family, I forgot all about the fun girl I can be. It was nice being her again for a while. Kieran didn't go to sleep until I got home, which was late...kinda thought that might happen. An early bedtime sounds good! :)

Our Thanksgiving was fabulous! I'll post pics of our yummy vegan feast soon.

Best Friend Mommy

Kieran has recently started calling me his best friend, Mommy. It's so super cute! I don't know where he learned it. If Josh wants to take him to the store without me he'll run to me and say "I want to stay with my best friend Mommy!" or yesterday when he was having pictures taken, he asked the photographer "please, I see my best friend Mommy?". I just love it! He also says please before almost everything. This kid has great manners...saying please, thank you and your welcome. He must have just picked it up from hearing us, as I've never told him he HAD to say them. LOL!

I am so glad that I will never have to have my wisdom teeth out again. Well, hopefully not! The dentist that came in to remove them decided against removing the top ones because they are so close to my sinuses. It seems to be taking forever for me to heal. The pain is practically gone, but I still have a hard time opening my mouth and it's hard/hurts to chew. It's been about 8 days since they were removed. When I went in for my checkup...the dentist told me the reason for that was due to having extensive work done...he said it was difficult getting the teeth out so they had to do a lot more work in there. They were very impacted and completely sideways. He went into detail, but I won't bore you :P. He seems to think I still need my top out(he's not the one who removed them), but I don't think so! LOL! I have lost a few pounds from this, which is a plus, I guess..haha. I can't wait to eat real food again!
There is only so much smooshed food a person can handle.

Tomorrow is the Day

It's definitely going to happen. I'm getting all of my wisdom teeth out. I talked to the nurse on the phone tonight and went over my health history, breastfeeding concerns, how I'll feel and other things. I'm very nervous. It's crazy...if you cancel... you have to give at least 48 hours notice or they charge you $300! But they can have me come in, get all set up and tell me they messed everything up and can't do the procedure because they weren't prepared? Where is my $300? Hahaha! What if someone came down with the stomach flu in the middle of the night? They have to pay for not coming in? Crazy. I see where they are coming from, but that's a lot of money...on top of how much it already costs. okay, done with my little rant. :P
So I'm nervous. The nurse said I'll be under heavy sedation, but might hear them talking. I'm just worried that I might feel the pain and not be able to tell them, or that I'll have to pee really bad(as I've mentioned before). I have a whole lot of concerns..I guess I'm just a worry wart. I'm sure everything will be fine. I'll be glad to finally have this taken care of. So no food or beverages after midnight. It will all be okay. *sigh*

My Kid's Are Amazing

I get so much joy from being a Mom.

A few nights ago I asked Kieran "want to sing the ABC song?". Totally thinking I'd be singing as he tried to follow along. Well, to my surprise, before I even opened my mouth to sing, he started singing it and sang the whole thing! I was shocked! About at shocked as when he counted up to 10 during the summer. Children are so amazing with the knowledge they absorb.

Tonight Nevin came up to me while I was crocheting and said he was bored. I asked him if he'd like to learn how to crochet and he said "sure, is it hard?". He picked it up rather quickly. He now knows the single chain :). He can be my crochet buddy! He's so proud of himself and I'm proud of him. Not only am I proud that he picked up on it, but even more because he didn't give up when he thought it was too confusing.

Halloween Time

We had such a fun Halloween!

Kieran started the day by painting a pie pumpkin:

Later we set up the candy on the porch with a sign saying to help yourself to a handful. We do this so that we can go out as a family. After having some pizza we headed out for some Trick or Treating! Nevin was an Unknown Phantom(his mask was neat...he could see out, but you couldn't see in). Kieran was a Zebra. He loved showing everyone his tail..."do you see my tail?" They both really enjoyed going out. K was such a big boy about it. He'd walk up and hold his bucket out and say "trick or treat" then he'd say "Thank you" or "Happy Halloween" ...he's getting so big! He was a little freaked out by Nevin's mask, but handled it quite well. Every so often he'd say "hi Nevin" and " Nevin...are you being scary?" and Nevin would say "yup, I'm being scary" and all was okay. I guess it was his little way of making sure everything was okay. :) Nevin was such a good big brother...helping Kieran up and down porch steps.

Since K is vegan...we bought a few bags of vegan friendly candy and when we got home, we quickly swapped out the candy with the new stuff. He was none the wiser to it. I'm curious as to what other vegan kiddo's do on Halloween when it comes to candy?

I hope everyone had a great Halloween! Here are some pics.

As you can see by the picture above...Nevin was soooo done and wanted me to stop taking pictures already! Hahaha.
